The Steeple Grange Light Railway

Established in 1985, the Steeple Grange Light Railway is an 18-inch gauge line near Wirksworth in Derbyshire. It is built on the trackbed of a branch of the old Cromford and High Peak Railway, now the High Peak Trail. Motive power is provided by ex-industrial diesel, battery-electric and petrol locomotives, and passengers are carried in an old National Coal Board manrider. The Steeple Grange Light Railway

When you visit the railway you can enjoy a unique twenty minute train ride through dramatic limestone scenery; hear about why and how the railway was built, and our plans for the future; investigate some of our vintage locomotives and rolling stock; discover fossils and wild flowers; and see work under way on our extensions towards Middleton and the National Stone Centre.
